Smoking and Liberty

I live in a city that recently passed a smoking ban.  While I don't smoke, I don't particularly mind smokers; I'll avoid overly-smokey environments by choice but can tolerate them without discomfort.  I think it's absolutely absurd to regulate smoking on private property of any sort.  If you're wavering on the issue, read these comments from Jerry the Geek, discussing reports that the UK is taking steps to prohibit smoking in your own home for at least an hour before any government worker (health worker, police, etc) arrives.

That's where this stuff is going.  It's hysteria aimed at destroying any pretensions to private control of property we have left.  And just like gun control, it operates by incrementalism.
